Justine Henin's former coach Carlos Rodriguez says that new pupil Li Na needs to work more on constructing her points better and think with her head and not her heart on court.
Since joining forces with Rodriguez, Li Na has reached the finals last week in Montreal and is also in Sunday's final in Cincinnati against Angelique Kerber.
"Like I say to her, we are all professionals but my way to work is to go deep into each point. It could be for her very difficult to deal with that at the beginning," Rodriguez told the media. "That's why I say to her, ‘I watch first. I talk to your husband, because he knows you better than anybody'...I see already a lot of potential. "The temperament is explosive — there (points to heart) is something that you have to know how to manage. I say to her, ‘For the moment you have to learn how to drive this (points to heart) with this (points to head).' Because when the opposite happens, it's a real disaster. When your feelings and your heart on the court drive this (points to head again), you don't see the road. I think she's very clever and smart…She moves very well but not that efficiently, not in the right way to be really 100 percent on the ball at the right time to take the right decision."
